  • The Garmin G3X EFIS system is designed for pilots of experimental/kitbuilt and light sport aircraft. The Garmin G3X makes it affordable to fly with the very latest in glass cockpit capabilities.

    Adapting proven technology from Garmin's top-of-the-line integrated flight deck systems, the G3X offers a full range of upgrade solutions to fit your panel, priorities and budget.

    Designed around the GDU 370/375 series of panel-mount displays, the Garmin G3X suite provides an easy-to-install, non-TSO'd option that lets you grow your system as your needs and budget dictate. For example, you can start with a single glass display that combines full primary flight (PFD) attitude/directional guidance with electronic engine monitoring and detailed moving-map multifunction (MFD) capabilities. Then, should you choose to expand your cockpit configuration, you can opt for separate PFD and MFD screens or even add a co-pilot's flight display. A built-in network interface allows up to three displays to be interlinked in the panel, with full reversionary backup for added safety and redundancy.

    Simplicity meets sophistication in the G3X flight deck. Using sophisticated graphics modeling, the integrated SVX synthetic vision technology provides a 3-D "virtual reality" perspective of what lies ahead. The system pulls together information from the built-in aviation basemap and terrain elevation database, letting you clearly visualize terrain features, obstacles, waterways and airport locations on the 7-inch high-definition display. The system can also be coupled with the TruTrak GX Pilot autopilot system to provide sophisticated flight control modes including altitude preselect and capture, heading hold and GPS navigation. The autopilot can even be used to fly WAAS approaches when used in conjunction with a GNS 400W/500W series unit.

    The Garmin G3X system uses the latest in GPS-aided digital ADAHRS (Air Data and Attitude Heading and Reference Systems). Leveraging solid-state sensors and sophisticated attitude determination and integrity monitoring algorithms used in Garmin's high-end G1000 system, the G3X's ADAHRS provides highly accurate and reliable referencing of your aircraft position, rate, vector and acceleration data. Better still, the complete sensor package ADAHRS and EIS engine monitoring, plus magnetometer and temperature probe - takes up just a fraction of the space and weight previously required by conventional gyro-based instrument systems.

    To create the ideal glass package for your aircraft, the G3X will integrate seamlessly with a wide array of Garmin avionics and sensors. The affordable SL40 VHF Comm or SL30 Nav/Comm units offer space-saving 1.3-inch high formats that fit easily in most smaller panels. To augment the G3X's non-TSO'd internal VFR GPS, you can opt to add Garmin's popular GNS 430W or 530W WAAS-certified IFR GPS/Nav/Comm units for even more capability. You can even connect cellphone calls or iPod/MP3/XM Radio players which the system will override with instant muting when radio transmissions are received from ATC.

    Garmin G3X: Flying with a full deck just got easier. Engine/Airframe interfaces: Engine Sensor Kits are now available for popular models of Lycoming, Continental, Rotax and Jabiru engines.
